Vance... looks better the second time around. The outline really sets if off.

Did you have any issue with getting the mask to stick to the etched glass?
Sure I paint thing for my amusement and then offer them for sale. A brushslinger could whither en die from lack of creativity in this plastic town my horse threw a shoe in. :shock:

tyler, no problem with clear vinyl adhesion . the problems came with removal. with the combination of blasting, summer heat, and leaving it on for a couple of days, it held with great tenacity. with each letter I had to begin with single edge razor at edge of letter to separate from glass and gently pull while spraying 3m adhesive remover . the lacquer thinner really helped to remove "stain" caused by remover. it was a slow process but worked out fine.
